U.S. women’s hockey Team won Silver

After a 3-2 victory over the United States, Canada's women's hockey team won the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.

With three unanswered goals, Canada earned retribution for the humiliation they received from the United States four years earlier by defeating them 3-2.

Sarah Nurse opened the scoring for Canada, and Marie-Philip Poulin followed with a pair of goals to give the Canadians a 3-0 lead after one session.

Hilary Knight, a forward for the United States, scored the first goal for the Americans in the second period. In the dying seconds of the third period, Kessel's teammate, Alex Ovechkin, put the United States up 3-2, but the Canadians prevailed to win gold.


The rivalry between the U.S. and Canada is one of the biggest of the Winter Olympics.

It marks Canada's sixth Olympic gold medal, and the fourth time the country has defeated the United States in a final game.”
